Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR, at last

Pentax finally join the other big boys and bring full frame to their fans, this is a very interesting entry in to the FF market from Pentax, lots of good features at a very good price $1800.  It comes with a full line up of lenses already in place, including the all important f/2.8 zooms. Using the Sony 36mp sensor, it will be interesting to see how it compares with the Nikon D810. Pentax has a very good track record with the MF 645z.

This will be available soon, but I'm guessing it will be back ordered right away. B and H shows availability on: April 05 2016, get your orders in quick. Buy it here.
